Aaron Hernandez taken from jail cell to hospital for undisclosed problem



DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) -- Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was briefly taken from a jail to a hospital this weekend for an undisclosed problem, a Massachusetts sheriff said.

Hernandez was brought to St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford Saturday and was back at the Bristol County jail in Dartmouth about an hour later, Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said Sunday.

Hodgson said he can't disclose what happened because of medical privacy laws.

Hernandez, a Bristol, Connecticut, native, has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in connection with the killings of two men in Boston in 2012 and the killing of another man found near Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.

Aaron Hernandez Hospitalized Over Weekend

The hospital visit, first reported by WBZ-TV in Boston, came a day after his attorneys said in a transfer request that Hernandez should be moved to a jail closer to Boston because communication with his attorneys and his personal safety are being compromised.

Boston-based attorneys Michael Fee and James Sultan complained their client has dealt with "bizarre and unprecedented" restrictions in his communications with his lawyers. Hernandez cannot always speak privately over the phone and in-person visits are limited to a specially-designated visitation room at the prison, they said.

The lawyers also suggested Hernandez's safety is at risk now that he faces criminal charges for allegedly threatening to kill a prison guard and his family, and in an alleged jail altercation with another inmate. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.

Hernandez is set to appear in court in Boston this week in the 2012 drive-by shooting that killed Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to all three killings.

His "tunnel of luv" has been softened up quite a bit. Well, that's what I heard anyway.

It appears he needed a few stitches in a private and personal area of his body...

In other news, after this weekend it is reported that Aaron Hernandez is no longer qualified to be a Tight End and would have to return to the NFL as a WIDE Receiver.

Pouring gasline down their throats and lighting matches to it after cutting the skin off the bottoms of their feet is suggested before throwing them K -Bar knifes to do what they may with them after the gas catches fire.

Thought maybe he tried to kill himself. No such luck I see. Too bad. He could do us all a big favor and just go away...for good. He is worthless. He had it all and he threw it all away being the big bag guy he thought he was.... he can rot away for all I care. I DO hope you get the death sentence for killing the people you killed Aaron..you are SCUM!
